    March 21, 2017 - Corked filthy

    February 6, 2017 - NobleRottersSydney - Penfolds prior to 2007 (360 Bar & Dining, Sydney): {cork, 14.5%} (Aaron) Decanted at start of dinner. Still fairly youthful, but flanked as it was by slightly older St Henri’s, it seemed very baked, sharp and harsh to me. The palate is raw and blocky, with medium gritty tannins, blackberry and sour cranberry fruit, medium/full body, and a medium-length finish tending hot and harsh. Not convincing. Age will tone it down, but the gritty heat it shows won’t help I suspect.

    January 6, 2017 - I remember this wine being wonderful. I let it decant for several hours and it never opened up. It tasted a bit off. I think my bottle went bad :(

    December 16, 2016 - 2 hours in the decanter. Raspberry, light white pepper, silky tannins, oak, sour cherry, paper, strawberries, almost a lime aftertaste. I keep hoping it will last but it's very light for a bin 389, i Think this is a drink now.

    September 17, 2016 - This is superbly balanced between fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant) subtle oak and the complex coffee, olive and savoury notes that bottle age brings. This is delightful now and I can't wait to see how it will develop over the next 5 to 10 years. Even better on day 2 - probably worth a 94!
